No. Not that I know of. If this is allergies, I have no other symptoms. No sneezing, congestion, coughing. Nothing. Nor are my eyes watery. Just glassy and red!!

It could also be dry eyes.

I would see a doctor in person for sure but you can start by trying systane eye drops at night.

you can get them OTC
